We are seeking to improve the quality of education and bring gender parity in the teaching profession by training 100 male and 100 female teachers by 2020

We aim to tackle undernutrition in children (0-5 years old) by providing healthy and well-timed nutrition. We seek to improve the health of young mothers by providing basic healthcare and education on how to prevent diseases related to undernutrition. We will seek to reduce stunting by 20% and wasting by 10% by 2020

We aim to create 250 young entrepreneurs by 2020. This will be achieved through our innovative social enterprise programmes.
